I remember one particular time, when I was about 6 or 7 years old, we went to Meme & Gramp’s house in Clayton (N.M.)and Meme was making this chili. After dishing it up, piping hot, she topped each bowl with a squirt of ketchup and a splash of white vinegar - a little bit of the “sweet & sour” effect. I still love to eat my chili this way.
